Warmed up by myself before the race for just under two miles. The weather was nice, it had been raining but had stopped by race time. I stripped down to shorts and a long-sleeve shirt.
I took off easy and moved my way up during the race. The mile markers were off so I didn't even worry about splits. I ran with a few guys for the first couple of miles and then HRH and I started to chase the group in front of us at about half-way. Bob was ahead of me until we hit the down hill with just over two miles left and I then pulled away and started to close on the three in front of me, one of which was Cody. I ran out of road before I caught any of them.
The course was tough, especially 4.5-7 miles. I ran about how I wanted and had no major disappointments. It was a decent performance for me right now.
I went on a cool down with Tracy Phiefield afterwards.
I am going to really have to pull out some good races next month if I want to place in my age in this circuit. At least I didn't lose much ground on the front runners this time.
I reached my goal of 50 miles for the week.
(Tangent 65 miles)
